SPIRIT of Excellence Award Winner

Yesterday, Wednesday, April 24, Ron Migues, clinical research coordinator, MedStar Clinical Research Center (MCRC) at MWHC, was honored with the 2013 First Quarter SPIRIT of Excellence Award.

The SPIRIT award honors one associate each quarter who is nominated by their peers
for excelling  in:

Patient first

Ron was nominated by his colleagues, who said that “Ron is a consumate professional and model clinical research coordinator. He is a tireless advocate of patients’ rights, as well as a believer in research." They also said, "He maintains a clear sense of good clinical practice, while deftly meeting the needs and demands of his principal investigators. In this way, he is an exemplary co-worker, and his service to his profession is unmatched.”
One of my favorite quotes about Ron was that "he is a natural and selfless mentor"... that says it all!

In the picture below, I presented the award to Ron after hearing remarks from several people inlcuding Dr. Alexandra Pratt, Critical Care Medicine at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and Leslie Ruhno, Administrative Director, MedStar Clinical Research Center.
Congratulations Ron!!!
